Introduction
I was hired at the Centre of Planning and Economic Research (KEPE) in 2008 as a Research Fellow where I am employed until today. My research interests include labour and education economics, human capital, gender inequality and migration, but I have contributed to several other projects that required competence in economics. I have also written several studies and reports for various ministries and public bodies and operated as a national expert for the European Commission.

Using Labour Force Survey data, the size and direction of the impact of education on employment prospects in Greece is explored along two axes: region and time. The findings suggest that educational attainment is always important across regions, but its impact on employment prospects varies along both axes. In general, more educated individuals enj...

The unusually wide age unemployment gap in Greece between youth (15–29) and older individuals (30–64) is investigated and decomposed to an explained and an unexplained component. The sample is drawn from the Labour Force Survey and is divided to two sub-periods: before the crisis (2004–2008) and during the crisis (2009–2016). Individual labour mark...

The present report evaluates the process of enactment and implementation of specific structural reforms relating to competition, examines the resulting changes in the operation of the relevant markets, and assesses, to the extent possible, the effects on key economic aggregates (prices, employment, and new entries). The legislative interventions co...
Article
We offer strong evidence of a wage curve mechanism in Greece, which seems to be substantially enhanced by reforms aimed at increasing labour market flexibility. Male, older, more qualified and rural employees appear to be more sensitive to regional unemployment.

This study investigates and compares gender earnings differentials across nine European countries using data from the last wave of the European Community Household Panel. Our results show that gender earnings differentials still exist and differ across countries. The fact that labour markets value the same characteristics differently by gender is t...

In particular, we calculate returns to upper secondary and tertiary education along the earnings distribution for thirteen European countries using the European Community Household Panel.

Unemployment rates for young individuals are particularly high in Greece and an important fraction of the young unemployed are tertiary education graduates. The results of this study imply that the problem is the transition from education to the labour market, irrespective of the individual’s age and educational qualifications. By and large, unempl...

The paper examines the determinants of hourly wages in the Greek labour market, with emphasis on education- and experience-related variables, using the information of the 2004-2007 Labour Force Surveys. The results are in line with the predictions of human capital theory and show that, ceteris paribus, education is associated with higher earnings....

However, since the early 1990s it became an immigrant destination and nowadays up to a tenth of the population are immigrants, mainly from neighbouring Balkan countries and, especially, Albania. This large scale immigration within a short time period had important social, as well as, economic conseque...

For the purposes of static inequality decomposition analysis, the data of the ECHP are employed. Considerable cross-country differences are observed across the EU regarding both the level and the structure of...
Article
Full-text available
In the public discourse, education is usually considered as the main vehicle for the promotion of social equality and social mobility. The paper surveys the existing literature and concludes that the relationship between education and inequality in Greece is strong. Inequities are evident at all levels of the education system; especially as regards...

The paper analyses gender differences in hourly earnings in Greece using three Household Budget Surveys (1988, 1994, 1999). During this period the aggregate gender earnings gap remained almost stable, amounting to less than a fifth of male earnings in the public sector and around a quarter of male earnings in the private sector of the economy. In m...
